From the publisher

What has happened to the public intellectuals that used to challenge and inform us? Who is the Sartre, de Beauvoir or Stuart Hall of the present age? In General Intellects, McKenzie Wark introduces us to 25 thinkers who are transforming the landscape of ideas in the 21st century, covering topics such as politics, culture, psychoanalysis, the anthropocene, and the 'nonhuman'. Each chapter explores an individual thinker, places them within the intellectual landscape, showing how they are opening up new horizons that will define our times. Wark, a respected theorist in his own right, also critically engages with their work. This is essential reading for all students as well as anyone interested in the current republic of ideas. The thinkers included are Amy Wendling, Kojin Karatani, Paolo Virno, Yann Moulier Boutang, Maurizio Lazzarato, Franco 'Bifo' Berardi, Angela McRobbie, Paul Gilroy, Slavoj Zizek, Jodi Dean, Chantal Mouffe, Wendy Brown, Judith Butler, Azumo Hiroki, Paul B. Preciado, Wendy Chun, Timothy Morton, Quentin Meillassoux, Isabelle Stengers, and Donna Haraway.
